Geoff Ross was born in Vancouver in 1968 and is a contemporary west coast Canadian sculptor who respects indigenous materials and their tactility. Through his older brother, who was adopted into his family at birth, Geoff became intrigued with the Haida, Coast Salish and other local First Nation’s cultural and artistic traditions. He has been strongly influenced by the meaning and significance certain local materials carry and his work directly reflects this enthusiasm. A previous commercial design career, and further development at Emily Carr Institute and Vancouver Film School, Geoff utilized his passion for the modern and contemporary and combined it with his traditional native art. His artwork is widely recognized for challenging boundaries and is avidly sought after by knowledgeable collectors.
